There are no accounts, you just download TeamViewer, and it will give you some ID and pass you can give to me so I can login.

On a side note - Stellarmate with Stars and EKOS is a wonderful setup, but it is certainly not 100% ready for the general market - unless it is being marketed to those with a fair amount of networking and Unix programming experience. It took me a while just to understand what you were talking about (editing the cmdline.txt for example) as I am not a unix programmer.


Please bear in mind that direct Ethernet connection was not advertised as a feature of StellarMate. WiFi, hotspot, regular Ethernet are all supported without any high knowledge of networking knowledge or a single line of code required. At any rate, I just added this so StellarMate, so the next StellarMateOS version shall support this out-of-the-box, but I'm still testing it now to prevent any possible regressions.

Regarding the image capture. I didn't test with your resolution yet, but for 4096x4096 16bit image over HotSpot, it takes around 30-40 seconds to download. I think if you have a large file sizes, it would be better off to save the images on StellarMate and access them later. If you need the image for preview or when doing focusing, then yes it needs to be downloaded to Ekos, but otherwise, saving it on StellarMate is sufficient.

Ekos doesn't do meridian flip per se. When the mount cross the meridian and Ekos wants to "flip it", it simply issues a new GOTO command to the _same_ coords the mount is already tracking. Mounts (depending on their settings) would then automatically perform the meridian flip.

If anyone can arrange me access to their mount on TeamViewer/SSH, I can remotely login and fix the issue. It's hard to program for a device you can't test against as you can imagine.

I just got it working with Italian by this:

sudo apt-get install language-pack-kde-it

Then started KStars --> Help --> Switch Language --> Selected Italian. Then restarted KStars and it was in Italian.

I don't run PA a lot since I have permanent pier. However, the workflow is simple assuming you are starting from parking position facing north:
1. Unpark
2. Run PA wizard (I select West first time)
3. Make corrections.
4. Run PA wizard again (east this time)
5. Done

It's possible, but I haven't tried it myself. Let me give this a go today as well (on my Mac Mini) and let you know how it goes.

They didn't give any time, but I think with a couple of week they will release an updated SDK.

Yes that is indeed excessive. Let me run a similar setup today at home and get back the results, but it shouldn't be 8 minutes!
